A portrait painter falls in love with her subject in Girlhood director Céline Sciamma's exquisite new film.

In 1760, Lady Héloïse's mother hires a female painter to create a portrait of her daughter for a distant suitor. But the painter, Marianne, must do so in secret because Héloïse is fiercely opposed to being married off; she thinks instead that Marianne has been hired as a walking companion.

In French and Italian with English subtitles.

Screening as part of the French Film Festival UK.

Running time: 2h19, including ads and trailers.
